Timeless classics: the pragmatic charm of traditional cloth gloves

Generally, fabrics used in gloves such as microfiber cloth, hydrophilic cloth , and rainy gloves can be classified into this category. Traditional cloth gloves have become the most popular type of glove among hitters on the driving range due to their exceptional durability. There is an interesting rule in the industry that higher-end gloves tend to be less durable. After all, higher-end gloves pursue control and touch. The gloves are thinner and are more easily damaged than strong cloth gloves.

Traditional cloth has almost no durability issues. Except for the common loosening and breakage of the sutures, cloth gloves have almost no breakage problems. For people who practice frequently, this is undoubtedly very attractive. During practice, the frequency of strikes is extremely high. Players pay more attention to the protective effect of gloves on the hands, and can temporarily put aside other requirements.

Affordable price Weak control
Water absorbent and hydrophilic Poor elasticity

Improvement direction

In order to give cloth gloves more functions, or to strengthen specific functions to make them more suitable for use in specific situations, manufacturers often optimize cloth gloves in the following ways:

  • Elasticity: Elastic gloves have become a very popular product on the market. Elastic fabric makes it easier for hitters with special hand types to find gloves that suit them. The improvement in elasticity makes it suitable for more hand types.
  • Breathability: Generally speaking, gloves made of traditional cloth have good breathability. However, in order to enhance this performance, some glove brands add breathable mesh to enhance breathability. The disadvantage is that the elasticity and coverage are slightly insufficient.
  • Anti-slip: Enhance the anti-slip effect by adding silicone or other high-friction substances to the surface of the gloves.
  • Rainy days: Generally speaking, as long as the gloves are made of traditional cloth, they have a certain degree of water absorption and water content. After the water molecules come into contact with the gloves, they are absorbed by the material, and the water molecules do not stay on the contact surface between the gloves and the club. , it will not slip when swinging, and still retains the original friction of the cloth. This kind of glove can be used well in rainy days, but the shortcomings are also obvious. The breathability of traditional cloth gloves decreases sharply after absorbing too much moisture, and the palms will be worn for a long time. It feels hot and humid when worn. There are specific styles of gloves on the market that use thicker flannel to enhance their performance in rainy days, which can hold more moisture and make them special gloves for rainy days.

We won’t go into details about other special types of gloves, such as fingerless gloves, decorative gloves, etc. If you find new types of gloves on the market or find shortcomings in the article, you can also leave us a message in the message box in the lower right corner. , we can discuss and promote each other together!

At present, GoPlayer has also launched two traditional cloth gloves, which are currently the most common gloves in practice fields in Taiwan:

Both gloves use first-generation silicone to cover the palm of the hand to enhance the friction of the user's swing. In addition, the ultra-fine fabric itself has good friction. The combination of the two achieves a good anti-slip effect.
